Saddle up your horses and pull on your country-style hat- can we get a big ol’ ‘yeee-hahhh’ (in an aussie accent) for Groovin The Moo, with the 2016 festival dates dropping today!
One of Australia’s biggest and most loved regional festivals, Groovin the Moo has a long 12 year history of good times and music in the Aussie outback. With venues and dates now locked in, everyone can start to get really excited about another fantastic line up.
So who likes to party out in the beautifully scenic Aussie landscape? Oh, you know- just some cool cats like Hilltop Hoods, Flight Facilities, Parkway Drive, Hermitude, Tkay Maidza, Meg Mac, The Preatures, Broods, A$AP...they were just some of the Groovin the Moo 2015 line up. So, if 2015 was anything to go by...damn- 2016 is sure to kick up some red dust! Keep your ears tuned for the line up announcement when it drops on the 28th January 2016.
As per usual, the festival will run through April and May, moving through different regional towns. Maitland is the first to get a taste of that Groovin the Moo atmosphere (Saturday 23rd April), closely followed by a string of the good old regular spots- Canberra, Oakbank (ANZAC Day), Bendigo, Townsville (over the QLD long weekend), and, finally finishing off in Bunbury.
While we know it is a bit of a drag to wait until January for the music line-up, we can at least provide you with some mouthwatering dates to start stirring up those excitement levels- not to mention spark some planning. Did someone just yell ‘ROADIEEEE!!!?’
